George R. R. Martin, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, has really been a true upholder of the fantasy genre. The books are believed to be the best work of fantasy since Lord of the Rings. An important part of a good fantasy is making sure it sets itself apart from reality, and a key component at that involves languages.

As some of you may know, the Dothraki and High Valyrian languages were fully developed solely for the TV adaptation, based upon the limited use of the languages in the books, by linguist David J. Peterson. He recently revealed the upcoming prequel House of The Dragon will feature more Valyrian than Game of Thrones.

In a recent appearance on the Bald Move podcast, Peterson said, “There was a lot more dialogue than I was expecting, which I was very pleased by. And a lot of very well-written dialogue, which I was also pleased by. It really challenged me as a translator.”

“Because in seasons 3, 4, and 5 [of Game of Thrones], a lot of it was not actually High Valyrian. A lot of it was Astapori. And then starting around season 6, the amount of material I was able to do really dropped off steeply. So yeah this is probably the most High Valyrian that I’ve done in a season. I was really pleasantly surprised by that. It’s not the most work I’ve done on a season, but it’s the most Valyrian that I’ve done.”
